WASHINGTON (Reuters) - North Korea has restored part of a missile launch site it began to dismantle after pledging to do so in a first summit with U.S. President Donald Trump last year, South Koreaís Yonhap News Agency and a U.S. think tank reported on Tuesday.

Yonhap quoted lawmakers briefed by South Koreaís National Intelligence Service (NIS) as saying that the work was taking place at the Tongchang-ri launch site and involved replacing a roof and a door at the facility.

Satellite images seen by 38 North, a Washington-based North Korea project, showed that structures on the launch pad had been rebuilt sometime between Feb. 16 and March 2, Jenny Town, managing editor at the project and an analyst at the Stimson Center think tank, told Reuters.

The news comes days after a second summit on denuclearization between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un broke down over differences on how far North Korea was willing to limit its nuclear program and the degree of U.S. willingness to ease sanctions.

9. Absolutely: And he brags on his ability as a "deal-maker"

Most deals he has made, as president, fall through or are obviously detrimental to the USA and/or our allies and trading-partners.

6. This move was probably the least of many possible negative moves

Kim could make. It's a reminder of the potential ICBM threat most analysts regard as not perfected at this point and needing further development.

I thought maybe restarting reactor operations at Yongbyun would be next.

8. I'm fine with canceling the military exercises--they are playing with fire.

 

The military exercises consist of fake invasions of North Korea. That forces the North Korean military to go on high alert. Then somebody fucks up and shoots down a civilian airliner, and there's war on the peninsula, with a country that has the ability to send nukes our way.

10. There's a reason for those exercises

The idea is to have two divisions on the ground in South Korea at the optimal time for the North to invade. We canít just pack 30k troops into Korea and have them do nothing, so we send them to the field.

11. Check this out:

 

The 2020 Commission Report on the North Korean Nuclear Attacks Against the United States: A Speculative Novel

It's a terrifying tale of military exercises, misjudgments, political incompetence in Washington, and Armageddon.

12. What a brilliant tactician and negotiator.

Too bad Bryce Harper didn't have Dump as his agent instead of Scott Boras. He would've walked away with a $300 /week contract instead of $300 million.

I guess these are the sorts of negotiating tactics that made Dumpo such a "great businessman".
